Mark 11:9-10, 11:15-17, 14:17-20
Ryan Longnecker. Palm Sunday, in the context of Good Friday, invites us to consider: How will we know something is God, or of God, when we see it? Scripture reveals that God's Kingdom is: peace in a world of violence, for all nations, humble service, and giving our whole lives. When we allow Jesus to be our model of truly living, we can't help but cry out, "Hosannah"!
Brandon Cook. God is not up in heaven pulling the levers of fate. Instead, He enters into the pain and suffering of the world. We are called to enter in as God does -- embracing and not cursing being in the world, seeking God's provision and to nourish and feed those He gives us to love. In this message, we explore how to be a people who cling to God's provision.
Rob Smidt. In this week's devotional teaching, we wrestle with ways we resist the new Exodus. As believers, when given the choice between slavery and freedom from ourselves, we continually choose slavery. We consider how to choose freedom and a new exodus by choosing to die to ourselves and step into a life of service toward others as a commitment to learning to live and love like Jesus, the Servant of all.
Barbara Sunofsky & Jaci Anderson. The New Exodus calls us to risk and let go of the things that hold us back from true life. In this live discussion, Barb and Jaci wrestle with the scripture in a conversation that invites us to consider how Jesus is inviting us to lay down our lives for his sake.
Steve Thomas. How can we follow Jesus into this new Exodus when our way seems better or best? In this message, we are encouraged to follow, trust, and confess. Through abiding fellowship, placing confidence in God, and declaring who Jesus has revealed himself to be, we are transformed into people who are free and open to all God has for us.
Brandon Cook. Mark re-tells the story of the Exodus—the great salvation event in Israel’s history and imagination—through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. In this message, we explore how Jesus is the beginning of the New Exodus and what that means for us. Specifically, we are called into the first two concrete actions of discipleship: “dropping our nets,” as Jesus’ early disciples did, and repenting so that we can turn into the Kingdom of God.
